Whats The Difference In The Labs?

Recommended Posts

hi, I have noticed that there is two main labs, enterolabs, they have the stool tests, and then I see there is York lab, and I think they have some kind of blood tests, for food allergy and gluten sensitivity, since money is sparingly, I wonder which way I should go, or shoud I just try a gluten elimination diet?

You can get a blood test at your regular doctors office, too.

You can try the diet but later on if you wan't to be tested you till have to eat gluten again.

If you feel your GI's testing was inconclusive, I recommend Enterolab. Enterolab test specifically for toxicity in the gut. They also test for IgA antibodies. York tests for IgG antibodies and is less specific for the gut.

I would use Enterolab if you suspect celiac disease, dairy, egg or yeast are causing you gut problems. I would use York if you think you are suffering from problems from other foods and don't present like celiac disease in particular.
